The Unnatural World is fine but I think most would agree that Deathconsciousness is the important one, both qualitatively and in terms of the band's longstanding cult appeal

At the very least, calling someone from this background an “insurgent” feels comically disingenuous

The Tom Waits stuff is mildly amusing but the alternate mix and sequencing of the Don't Tell A Soul material is just amazing. Real shame the songs weren't released like this originally.

I’m something of an MCR apologist, but I don’t think Bowie could have conceivably written lyrics like this... not to say that all of his are gems, but none are overbearing and bathetic in precisely this way.

I was at this one. Built to Spill's three-piece live lineup is really disappointing. Great show otherwise.

Didn't expect this from them but it's nice to see. Also a good deep cut song choice.

10,000 Maniacs did a great version of "I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You" back in the 90s

August 22, 2019 on Hear Two Tracks From New Tom Waits Tribute Album Featuring Phoebe Bridgers, Aimee Mann, Rosanne Cash, & More
I'm of the opinion that the "Whiteout Conditions" title track is one of their very best songs. This one, it's decent

Surprised to see the "Cowboy Overflow of the Heart" demo mentioned here rather than the more recent official Avalanches/Berman release that came from that collaboration, "Saturday Night Inside Out"
